I went for the sole purpose of seeing the famous Sarajevo Haggadah. But it's in an area that is closed for renovation. It's the greatest piece in the museum so you would think they'd make it available.

The impressive grandeur of the building hints at the promising treasures inside. Even though the collection is relatively small for a national museum, it is quite well curated and engaging. There are artifacts from Greek, Roman and Medieval periods. There are informative, English explanations for...More

The museum is unusual. The ethnographic section was the most interesting with the intricate wood panelled rooms. In the natural museum section, I had to find and turn on the lights myself. The rocks were displayed in lovely old wood cases and on wooden pedestals...More

The National Museum has a great building with the history of Bosnia. It has a lot of Roman artifacts everything is also explained in English. Also has a Natural History building which also has an awesome gem collection. It is close to public transportation.

Three very different rooms. The Roman room was very interesting, with lots of Roman ruins dating back in time. A natural history room, and our favourite the ethnology room, with a reconstruction of a well to do Muslim home...really interesting to see.

It's a pity some collections - like that one showing the Roman exhibts from ilidza - are closed at a moment. This museum, with its rich antiquity, ethnography, natural, mineralogical and history sections is definitely worth a visit. there isa botanical garden too, and exhibition...More

Hi, When we were there end of May 2017, we have seen the Hagaddah. It is in a little room apart from the other exhibition items, and we could go in the room.
